Plans are being finalized for the various events and activities to include entertainment, music, food and inductee involvement for the four-day celebration. An historical exhibit detailing the 35-year history of the Hall of Fame, the WNFR and PRCA will open in Gallery 101 in the Hall of Fame on May 1 and will remain up throughout the summer and these events. The exhibit will also include many historical artifacts from the Hall’s collections. As details are firmed up, we will promote the activities on our website, newsletters and social media. Be watching for updates and more information.
The Douglas County Fair and Rodeo also will be host to visiting state queens who come for the rodeo, the induction ceremony and several other events that are planned for them. On Aug. 7, the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo will host its first Xtreme Bulls event. On Aug. 9, the rodeo will host the Class of 2014 Hall of Fame inductees for that night’s rodeo performance.
In addition to the anniversary and induction events, the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy is also planning to commemorate the National Day of the American Cowboy on July 26 with some special entertainment. Details will follow as plans are finalized.
